If the out let or in let of the muffler is broken, the muffler will need to be replace. If it's not broken with u-clamps, most auto parts will have this.

Last time. I have Ford focus 2003 sedan dohc 2L. I lost a part from exhaust system. from back to front I see 1. tail pipe 2. rectangular box shaped part? Lunch Box? 3. missing part Muffler?


Starting from the front, coming off the exhaust manifold should have, 1. Exhaust pipe, 2. Catalytic converter, 3. Exhaust pipe, 4. Resonator, 5. Tail pipe. Also, there should be an Oxygen sensor somewhere around the catalytic converter.

How do you take the muffler off


On most cars, if it is the original muffler, it will be welded into the exhaust system. You would need to cut the muffler out of the system with a pipe cutter, hacksaw, or torch to remove it. Aftermarket mufflers are installed with clamps. Those must be removed in order to remove the muffler. Even then, the clamps will crimp the pipes together and you often have the chisel the muffler collars off the exhaust pipe to remove.

Why is my car riding hard. I just had the complete exhaust system replaced on my 99 intrigue and instead of the dual exhaust muffler the mechanic put a single exhaust muffler on it and now the car is...


its important to have the right amount of backprettiar in your exhaust, so if going from 2 mufflers and 2 pipes to a single one would need to enlarge the size of the pipe to compansate. or it wont breath right and end up gutless.

Convert dual exhaust on 99 sunfire gt to single?


You can cut out the Y pipe and replace it with a flex pipe from parts store, then clamp each end of the flex pipe, the pipe diameter will be 1-7/8 or 2 inch, also for the pipe replacement piece would work from a sunfire or cavalier from 1995 and up, might need to replace the muffler strap too. as it can break from rusting, if not already rusted and broken.

What is the peice of exhaust piped between the catalytic converter and the muffler called?


If you are reffering to what is in the picture below, the pipe between the Cat and the muffler is just simply exhaust pipe. BUT, the flanges on the ends of the pipe are called collectors. I hope this help and I will never visit London ;)

My car sounds like a motor cycle is it a problem with the muffler?


Easiest way to find out is to put the car on jacks or ramps. Then roll under and examine your exhaust system. It could be your muffler, exhaust pipe, or catalyic converter. More than likely its a hole in the exhaust pipe before the muffler or your muffler has seperated from the rest of the exhaust.

Exhaust Pipe broke/Rust on muffler


Flex pipe will work, or if it's a straight section of pipe you can buy a universal piece of exhaust tubing with flared ends, trim off the rusty ends on your original pipe with a hacksaw or Sawzall and slip in the new section. Clamp it with 2 muffler clamps and you're set. Total cost should be under $40.
